Carry Optics Sight for 320 Legion

Recommended Posts

OK so I’ve shot both a Glock 17 and a Tangfo Stock 2 in carry optics both with a Burris FF 2. Hated both and went back to production because I couldn’t keep the dot in the window on recoil and had much trouble tracking it. Basically I would finish higher overall in production.  I just got a P320 X5 Legion and I’m itching to try CO again just for that big magazine. Is there any red dot option to make it easier to keep said dot in the window? Also before anyone says it I’m not limp wristing the gun. Basically an A class shooter master in production but I have slid a little since then my eyesight is getting worse hence the other hand reason for carry optics.

Shooting CO, tried Trijicon RMR and Leupold  DPP 2.5 and couldn’t find  the dot. Just switched to the new Trijicon SRO 5.0 and it’s made a world of difference. Draw the gun,  the dot is there every time. A bit pricey, but very much worth it!

Find an optic with a bigger window, that might help you keep up with the dot. I'd suggest finding another CO shooter that has a DPP and see if they'd be willing to let you run a magazine or 2 through it, the DPP has the largest viewing window if I'm not mistaken. The Legion is already cut for the DPP as well...

I may be wrong, but I believe I’ve read that the new SRO is even larger than the DPP.

DPP is the correct answer. It's got a big window, and you don't need an adapter plate to mount it to a Legion.

Thanks all. I had not seen the SRO so I’ll check it and the DPP out any word on if sig is coming with a new version of the Romeo that might have a big window? I thought I saw someone mention in a post but nothing on the sig website yet.

SRO 5 MOA, clean big dot seen in a tunnel. The DPP is 2.5 and while it can be turned up very bright it looks like a burst to me. Hard to find one in stock though.

 

This is a 2.5 MOA, look how natural it looks and tracks

Someday "soon" they are supposed to release the Romeo 3MAX. Who knows when...

Give the DPP a try. As previous stated the Legion is already set up for it which is quite nice.

What's the gun weight with the 507c and the Springer plate?

Thanks for the responses. I’m torn I like the look of the SRO a little better but it’d be nice that the DPP would mount without a plate. I think I might try a DPP if it don’t suit me I need a sight on a SW 627 too I’ll just move it to that gun and get a SRO later

Hello: You may want to buy 2 DPP's so you can send one in for repairs so you can have one that works in hand at all times. That seems to be the trend around here with the Open and Carry Optics guys. I would do some reading to see what options are out there and what is coming down the pipeline. Thanks, Eric

SRO 5.0 appears to be out in the wild but not on the internet. I went into my LGS to pick up my second 320 Legion and there it was, a SRO 5.0 behind the counter up for grabs. I have had an order through OpticsPlanet since early July and they told me on Friday it was delayed again until September 5th.

Guys with Legions on a FB group are reporting no fouling using a SRO. I mounted mine and see for yourself why I think DPP will foul with the Legion’s barrel LCI

Looks like the SRO sit's further out over the LCI- nice photos>

I am not using the Legion slide combo yet but even the Romeo 1 on my GEN 1 slide combo get dirty with carbon dusts and some oil spill after some stages. I just use a target paster to remove them from the glass. Works pretty well.

Shot an invitational match today 250 round count.  Fellow shooter with his new Legion and a DPP.

Keep asking him if the glass was getting fouled/ Dirty he said no every time and never saw him wipe .

Maybe his load combo is clean enough not to be a problem.

 

Really enjoyed my Tungsten grip module today.  Starting to see more and more benefit to it the more I shoot it!

An owner with my setup shared he has 2000 rounds down range and fouling is isolated under the hood. I’ll be putting plenty of rounds very soon.

Yes, please report back. I’d like to stay with the DPP and with N320 have not had an issue at all.

You have no clouding with N320? I get some with 147's at 3.2g.
